Swinging on a Star

Swing in,swing out,
To the world I shout,
Spread peace and love,
That's what I'm about,
From a star so far,
I see hatred and war,
Hunger and death,
Leaves it scars,
New life unfolds,
Dark secrets untold,
For fame and power,
Many loose their soul,
I kick the swing back,
Tense,I can't relax,
I see wars being planned,
Men on the attack,
Nuclear explosions,
Millions dead,for what,
Because of rumours,
Leaders,stick to the facts,
I jump from my swing,
Slide to earth on the beam of my star,
I got a message for you,
God said,'Peace n' Love,
Will conquer,hatred n' war'....

    Hey, I looked up Roach Busters and they went out of business YEARS AGO! hahahah...That was a hoot...how funny!...The idea of actually swinging on a star and showing the motion thru your entry is quite original..don't think anyone else came up with these powerful images...Very nice write, Poetic Palmer! :) gwendolen

    I admire your sense of immortality & star travel Palmer - could Life exist without conflict? Stephen Marley compose a most stimulating music called "Mind Control",a masterpiece you'd respect for certain - I"m glad you believe in your mission - J.A.B.
